President Trump delivered his first ever State of the Union address Tuesday night, calling on both parties to unite and touting a strong economic message to the American people; predictably prompting only one-side of the packed chamber to rise to their feet.
Liberal legislators led an all-night sit-in against the Commander-in-Chief, refusing to rise after the President cited record-low unemployment for African-Americans, unprecedented job growth, the defeat of ISIS, a booming stock market, and all-out patriotism.
The Washington Free Beacon compiled a hilarious list of “Things Democrats Won’t Applaud” Wednesday morning, showing Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and other liberal leaders refusing to stand as the President touted America’s success stories.

DON’T HOLD YOUR BREATH: Schumer Tells Trump to ‘THANK OBAMA’ at SOTU
House Minority Leader Chuck Schumer offered some “expert advice” to President Trump just hours before his State of the Union address, telling the Commander-in-Chief to thank former President Barack Obama for the booming economy and unprecedented stock market growth.
The liberal legislator was speaking on the Senate floor Tuesday afternoon when he called on the President to “admit” that “he inherited the healthy economy” from his predecessor; adding much of the strong economic recovery was “created by President Obama’s policies.”
“The president will be eager to defend the accomplishments of his nascent administration and take credit for a healthy American economy, pointing to low employment, job growth, and a soaring stock market,” Schumer said. “But the truth is these trends were present before Donald Trump took office.”
“President Trump was handed an already healthy economy by his predecessor,” he claimed. “Like many things in his life, he inherited the healthy economy. Here are two words we won’t hear President Trump say tonight about the economy – thanks, Obama – because much of the growth in 2017 was created by President Obama’s policies and by many measures the growth under President Obama was better than under President Trump.”

RECLAIMING HER TIME: Maxine Waters to DELIVER ‘WOKE’ Response to Trump’s Address
Crazed California Congresswoman Maxine Waters is set to deliver a scathing response to President Trump’s first State of the Union address; delivering an “exclusive rebuttal” live on the BET network following the Commander-in-Chief’s primetime speech.
The liberal legislator will deliver her remarks Wednesday evening, just one day after the President speaks before both Houses of Congress; detailing his agenda and legislative proposals on infrastructure, immigration, and the economy.
“The special will feature Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA, 43rd District) delivering an exclusive rebuttal to the president’s state of the union address,” writes BET. “Representative Waters is widely recognized as one of the most outspoken political leaders against Donald Trump’s presidency and his administration; she has called for his impeachment on several occasions.”
Waters is no stranger to controversy regarding President Trump.
The left-wing lawmaker has routinely slammed the Trump family as a “criminal enterprise” and has labeled those closest to the President as a “bunch of scumbags.”
